This weekend was exactly what I needed! Ill start with the most embarrassing part and just get that over with...on Saturday morning I woke up at 7am, but I wasn't quite ready to get up yet, so I went back to sleep and poof, I woke up 11am. Other than teenagers and sick children who sleeps until 11?!? haha, I still cant get over it, I never sleep that long, I might stay in bed until 11 but never sleep that long! I'm still amazed, but I do know that I needed some sleep.
My house work was neglected last week so I finally got up and started cleaning house. I did a couple thousand loads of laundry and got my house back in order then ran some errands around town. I missed the opportunity to workout due to the 11am wake up call!!!!! So once my day was done I was sitting on the couch and feeling a little bit guilty that I had not gotten a workout in. So I laced up my running shoes, you know the ones, and hit the road.
I live in a pseudo-subdivision, its really only about 15 houses on a circle road, we don't have a club house or an association or anything. For the most part people keep their critters tied up on inside so there is not a big worry about being chased by a dog and there is little to no traffic so its a pretty safe place to run. Its one big circle almost exactly half a mile and somehow up hill both ways, with a really big hill on one side! All in all a pretty good running ground.
I have set up a mini gym in my garage, basically I just put all my workout stuff in one place and the only place it would all fit is in the garage. So on Saturday night I ran the loop, then did some body weight exercises in the garage and out for another loop. I started trying to beat my time and now it has become a little game. So tonight I will try to beat it again. I'm just glad I found this little game as it started getting hot outside.
By the time I was done with my workout I was sweating like crazy!!!! Oh how I have missed the sweat!
Tonight I have to do some weight training because I have let that slip, I usually do every few months or so but now that the afternoons are calming down a bit now that school is out I should be able to get to the gym at least 3 days a week to pick up heavy stuff like I need to!
I am already getting excited about next weekend....this one was so good just imagine how much I will enjoy 3 days next week!!!!!!
